    He was listed as a DNP-CD. No idea why or if that’s true.

    From what I've been reading (barely anything out there), it seems more like coaches moving in a different direction, less about the thigh contusion. Very disappointing if that's the case.

    That makes sense.

    It's a great strategy, to see what worked all year long and then abandon it in the playoffs.
    I'm laughing. Why aren't you?

    This is likley the best read out there on it.

    There is a bit of a roster crunch that may keep him in a reserve role all season.

    And it didn't help that last year someone tweaked his shot and it went into the crapper. He dropped drastically in shooting efficiency last season. It looked like the SJSU Clarke shooting form returned. Thankfully he has looked better in preseason so far and he should carve himself out a decent bench role. He got the start the other day and performed well.

    Thanks ZN.


    That tune getting me pumped (for the Dodgers).
    But we don't play nobody.

    BC hasn't played very much for several games......what is going on?....is it going to be like Sabonis in that a trade to a team that wants him and wants him to play is in the cards?

    I think the in game match ups weren't to his strengths, so they sat him.

    Just my guess.

    Brandon Clarke through the first 9 Grizzlies games:
    12mpg 4.5p, 3r, 1a on 46/0/42 shooting 0/2 from 3 on the year.
    3 DNP-Coaches Decisions in the last 5 games.

    Still not sure if this BCs doing of just a shift in the Grizzlies roster. Kyle Anderson has shifted to a 4 this year and that is definitely taking some of BCs minutes. But his shot could still be busted like last year and the coaching staff has lost confidence in him.

    Either way, he is not in a good spot right now.

    11 first half minutes tonight, 12 points on 4/6 (0/1 from 3) and 4/5 FT, along with 6 rebounds.

    Finished with 20/9 in 24 minutes. 8/11 and 0/2 from 3 plus 4/5 FT.

    He had better stats than the starter at PF.

    I do think that some of his dnp's are because of opposing team lineups. Teams that play 3 guards and a small forward wit only one true big are a harder matchup for him...or the staff thinks it will be a harder match up.

    Much like the Zags fantasy of starting 3 bigs. Other teams might not be able to stop them on the offensive end, but if they countered with a 4 guard lineup, they might still win because the bigs couldn't stop the smalls.
